Unless you frequently drive your car through standing water deep enough to just about cover your foglight, you will probably never hydrolock your engine. Here in Houston, water gets damn deep when it rains. I've had no problems. I do recommend a shield however. You can make one very easily or buy one.
Sciroccos are cool.
